Pumpkin Spice Protein Breakfast Pudding

This gluten-free and dairy-free pudding came from thebettyrocker.com. It has all the fall flavors wrapped up in one warm, nourishing, pumpkin-y dish and can be eaten warm out of the oven or cold from the refrigerator. Who wouldn’t love pumpkin pie for breakfast?!

Ingredients

1 15oz can pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin)

2 eggs (if you don’t eat eggs, make flax eggs: one flax egg is 1 T flaxseed meal + 3T water)

1 11oz container culinary coconut cream (you can also use canned full-fat coconut milk)

3 scoops vanilla protein powder (optional)

1/4-1/3 cup maple syrup – taste the batter and add more if needed, the amount depends on how sweet your protein powder is

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp sea salt

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all ingredients to the blender and blend.
  3. Pour into ramekins (I used 6 6oz ramekins)
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean

Topping suggestions: coconut cream and berries, hemp seeds and Greek yogurt, walnuts and bananas
